North West law firm SAS Daniels has promoted James Clarke to real estate partner, based in its head office in Stockport.
With expertise in acting for strategic land promoters, Clarke returned to SAS Daniels' Stockport office in 2012 after training with the firm in 2005 and going on to spend five years at a Cheshire-based developer and land promoter Gladman.
Part of the 34-strong real estate team, Clarke will advise on all non-contentious commercial real estate and construction matters, from acquisition to disposal, specialising in strategic land promotion and residential development.
Tom Cressey, partner and joint head of the real estate team at SAS Daniels, said: "I'm very pleased for Jamie. It's a validation of the hard work he's put in over recent years, together with the very solid client relationships he's built.
"The real estate team has seen significant growth in the last year, contributing to the firm's record annual fee income of over £7m. As a valued asset to our team, Jamie will be key to us realising our potential."
SAS Daniels has offices in Stockport, Macclesfield, Chester and Congleton.
